A brief extra edition of the peace calendar, due to a mistake of mine for one event and a change in location for another event. First the mistake. I had incorrectly listed a NW Neighbors for Peace event with Dr. Steven Miles as taking place on June 7. The correct date is June 14. The description of the event is as follows: On Thursday June 14, 7 PM, Dr. Steve Miles, Professor of Medicine and Bioethics at the U of MN, will speak on his book, "Oath Betrayed: Torture, Medical Complicity, and the War on Terror." He will follow comments by Dick Bopp, Coordinator of Amnesty International Group 315, and the film, "Outlawed: Extraordinary Rendition, Torture and Disappearances in the 'War on Terror'". Free and open to the public at the Parish Community of St. Joseph, 8701-36th Ave. N., New Hope, (corner of Boone). For more information, NW Neighbors for Peace, nwn4p [at] yahoo.com or Eileen Moran, 763-545-2296. Second, the location change. The event to organize a protest to the Republican agenda during the September 2008 convention is still taking place this Saturday, but the location has changed from St Paul Trades to the Student Center of the U of M St Paul campus. The full announcement is listed as follows: Sat. 6/9 @ 2-5pm, NEW LOCATION (sorry for confusion) @ U of M - St. Paul Student Center, 2017 Buford Ave, St. Paul, MN (Directions and parking info: http://www.spsc.umn.edu/about/directions.php) The Republican National Convention (RNC) is coming to our backyard. Feeling angry? Want to do something? You and your organization are invited to join us for a gathering of those who have already started organizing to resist the RNC in 2008 and those looking for a place to start. This will be a space for people to come together and share ideas and energy. The afternoon will be broken into 3 parts. We'll start with a "clearinghouse" where organizations can table and have an opportunity to chat with attendees one-on-one. This will be followed by a facilitated "open mic" discussion period. Discussion will start with explanations about what is already underway, and continue with attendees sharing their hopes, dreams, and visions with each other. The day will conclude with "break out" sessions where participants gather around specific topics of interest and decide on "next steps." Let's meet each other, get to know each other, and start to work together! Child Care and Snacks Provided. Co-hosted by: Protest RNC 2008 and the RNC "Welcoming" Committee. To increase your participation level please contact Karen R at: vegan14ever [at] riseup.net. Increased participation could include: having an information table, presenting your "already underway" plans, and/or volunteering to help with the event.
